Champions of Photovoltaics - Photovoltaics World
Welcome to Champions of Photovoltaics Submission Contest for Materials!

Solar electricity wouldn't exist today without the scientists who discovered ways to harness the sun's power and the entrepreneurs who turned the science into saleable products. In this category, we'll celebrate the people behind the advanced research of new materials for future photovoltaics (Please note there is a separate category for commercialized developments in cells and modules). We are looking for thought leaders, both in the labs and in the offices, who have boosted the prospects of the solar industry's ultimate success and will continue to play a key role in the solar industry for years to come. Not sure who to nominate? Check out last year's Champions here.  Please register or log in and go to the Submission page to continue
